Tiamera - Goddess of Luck
"Come on...Come on. By Tiamera's grace please let me win. I have hungry kids at home who need this. Be good to me, Tiamera. Be good to me." - An example of a gambler's prayerFlashy, glamorous, and all about the show, Tiamera is a puckish deity over the domain of Luck. Often she is hailed as the overseer of dice rolls and coin tosses, and many an excited gambler has bowed their head in silent prayer just before betting their life savings on the turn of a card. As much as she values games of chance, she also places sovereign weight on both the stakes and the show.
Bets of trivial value (or no bets at all) are less likely to grab her attention than someone placing their entire earnings on the line. Equally so, the lead in as eyes peer just above the line of their cards, or the breaths held when the dice tumbles onto the mat, is said to be a dance in honor of the holy maiden. Someone who demonstrates good luck is said to be 'blessed by Tiamera, herself', though she can be fickle. Eventually someone will lose, so not walking away when the earnings are high and continuing to gamble is referred to as 'Tiamera's setup', or just the 'setup', and many scorned at the table will blame their loss on the Goddess as raising them high so she can drop them from a great height. In actuality it's just a gambler's ill will to cease as she plays no part in this, but she accepts that her worshipers need to point the finger to feel absolved of their self created sin.
